Password may be disabled by a jumper on the system
board.

I've been blocked from my Windows Live account. How do I get back in?


Do you mean blocked or forgot your password?
If you have been blocked (ie: too many failed logins.):
a) wait awhile and try to login again.b) try to reset your password. (see steps below)c) Try the Windows Live Account Help Center at:http://explore.live.com/windows-live-account-help-centerd) when all else fails try calling Microsoft, sometimes companies will reset the password if they think you are really who you claim to be.

If you forgot your password then do the following:
Go to the windows live site. In the sign in section look underneath the login name and password fields and click on the line "Can't access your account?" This takes you to a page that gives you options to regain access to your account.

I reset my toshiba laptop, (windows vista) and it added a password, i used fix- it utilities 8


if you did not put a password then try just hitting Enter or Return on the password line

Usually your user name will do or "Administrator" (note the capitals letters)

password line will be blank

if all fails then try goin into safe mode by tapping F8 key while booting up computer and selecting Administrator, then once inside the computer you can remove the password from control panel / User account section.
